#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | Things I don't have time for

Happy Humpday friends! I once again find myself only showing up for my weekly hashtaggin'. I'm not proud of it, but I can't seem to find it in me to get more written here. 

It's not for lack of ideas. Or lack of desire. Ok maybe a little lack of desire. But mostly it's just that I don't have time. It seems to be a common thing lately for me. 

Before we get into it, let me remind you you have a plethora of link ups to confess your face off to every Wednesday. #Hashtaghumpday with my partner in crime Lauren and I of course, Alanna for confessions as well as Plucky in Love, and then Kathy and Nadine! So much humpity-hump-day love!    

#Hashtaghumpday @ Life with Lolo


 First a little business. Here’s the scoop:
  • Each Wednesday create a post about what’s going on in your life and #hashtag each item or story. See an example HERE. Be as creative as you want! 
  • Grab the button and include it in your post
  •  Link up so we can all #creep on you and find out what’s new/funny/awesome /shitty in your life.
  • Comment on at least one other blogger’s post from the link up (someone you don’t already know!) if there even is anyone who links up…
  •  Share on all your social sites with #hashtaghumpday
  • Have fun! #hashtagtheshitoutofeverything #whocaresifitsarealhashtag

Kapeesh?

When you get to be a certain age, there are a lot of things you stop giving a F about and that you frankly just don't have time for.

For example. I don't have time for ridiculous levels of approval processes at work. When I get shit done, good shit I might add, and then it circles back to me with the question "did it go through legal?" I get very, very pissed.  First of all, why didn't anyone tell me it needed to go through legal in the first place? And second, if it's gone through every other freaking department in the whole company how did none of those departments feel the need to share it with legal. Let's just add one more hoop to jump through why don't we? #aintnoonegottimeforthat




Another thing I don't seem to have time for lately is cleaning. I've let it slip. Partially because I ran out of swiffer wet cloths for my mop, and partially  because who gives a #bleep. #aintnoonegottimeforthat



Along with cleaning, cooking has also slipped away from me and my time limits. I guess I've just un-domesticated myself. The bummer part about this one though is that I actually like to cook. I don't like the dishes and mess it makes though. And since you've seen the above thing I don't have time for, I can't go making messes #aintnoonegottimeforthat



I bet you can guess the next one. Exercise. BINGO! Nope, can't seem to get to the gym either. I've been going to volleyball multiple times a week. Which is a major part of all the above time issues. However as my only physical activity I think that makes it ok. Getting to the gym lately though? #aintnoonegottimeforthat



And since I can't find time to do anything I need to be doing or caring about, I'm obviously behind on packing for my trip to San Fran this week. Tomorrow I'm jetting off for the epic #SFBingerWithMyGinger bachelorette party!



So have a beyond wonderful rest of your week and weekend.

AND LINK UP FOR GOD's SAKE!

#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | I'm Back....

Ok, so I know last week I promised I was on my way back into blogging.... and then it's still been a whole week since I posted. Oops. Hey that's life right?

I don't want to come here and make promises anymore because look where that has gotten me. NOWHERE. That doesn't mean I don't want to be here more or that I don't miss keeping up with all of you. If there are any of you left...

All I know is I'm going to try. So there's that.

Before we get into it, let me remind you you have a plethora of link ups to confess your face off to every Wednesday. #Hashtaghumpday with my partner in crime Lauren and I of course, Alanna for confessions as well as Plucky in Love, and then Kathy and Nadine! So much humpity-hump-day love!

Kapeesh?

My brain is about as fried as it comes with two weekends out of town (more on that later, I hope) a fun in the sun weekend last week (for extra frying power) and enough craziness at work to make anyone loony. So you were warned in advance how random this will be #crazyiswhatimgoodat



I bailed on work early yesterday to get my hair done. I took full advantage. Got myself a coffee, sat and enjoyed myself. There's nothing like it in my opinion. New hair feels. LOVE IT #highlightlife #salonaddict #newhairdontcare



I'm going to San Francisco next week. EEEEEEE!!! (Probably means very little blogging again - oops). It's for a bachelorette party and it's going to be fabulous. I told myself I was going to budget for it though....and well... thank goodness for credit cards. I feel like if it's travel and experiences it's worth it right? #seetheworld #onebachelorettepartyatatime



I almost forgot the BF's birthday. I got a Facebook invite for another friend's birthday party this weekend and luckily he commented in the event "that's my bday weekend too." Hello last minute red flag. I told you my brain was wack! #howdoiforgetafter5years #manthatsbad



So I ordered his gift and paid the extra for a rushed delivery. Fingers crossed it gets here by Monday (his actual birthday) #mailwatching #wishmeluck #hebetterloveit



I've been dubbed "team lead" as part of our annual convention happening in July. I'm in charge of the entire social media training section of our expo space - about 70,000 feet worth! That's JUST my section. While I am beyond pumped to take on this enormous responsibility I can't help but also be ridiculously stressed. They have one of their newest employees doing this - they must have extreme confidence in me or something #guessishouldbemoremature #stillthinkitsabovemypaygrade #sowheresmyraise



Still as stressed as I am, I am equally as excited. I've been given this tremendous opportunity, I get to go to Nashville all expenses paid, see a show at the Grand Ole Opry and spread my wings not only in social media but also in event planning. It's kind of a job-dream come true #finallyfoundit #stressedbutblessed



There are a MILLION things I want to chat with you all about, including a trip to Minnesota, a horseride through the vineyards of Washington, some other miscellaneous tidbits, etc. But to be honest I got sucked into an epic Womens College World Series softball game on TV tonight (a 7+ run comeback!) and time got away from me #thiswasmeinfrontofthetv #softballforthewin



So I'll leave those tasty morsels for another day. #letshopeithappens.

Till then, happy humpday people! Link up!

#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | Sorry I'm Late!

So I kind of forgot to come back from my break....

Ooops! Hey, but I'm here, even if late. HUGE APOLOGY to the usual linkers!

I don't have anything today because I'm speed writing this at work.

BUT.... I do think I'm going to come back. YAY! More later this week.

All my love - now link up!

#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | Still mini breaking!

#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | The Break

We meet again over the bonds of #hashtagdom and humpday fun!

Before we get into it, let me remind you you have a plethora of link ups to confess your face off to every Wednesday. #Hashtaghumpday with my partner in crime Lauren and I of course, Alanna for confessions as well as Plucky in Love, and then Kathy and Nadine! So much humpity-hump-day love!

Kapeesh?

Alright, in case the post title didn't fill you in, I've decided. I have decided to take a break. A mini-break though. So don't you fret #iknowyouwereworried



I think taking one to two weeks off would do me a lot of good. I have a lot to figure out and clean up in my life. Yes, one post a week is basically "a break" in general, and I deserve all the shit giving for saying I need even more of a break on top of that, but hey, I think it's for the best #seriouslythiscouldrechargetheshitoutofme #cleanupmylifeandgetmyshittogether



So that means next week I will not be here. Well, I'll have  A POST for you to link up with because I'm very full of myself and assume you will still do so even if I'm not around #youwillright?



No but really, I truly, whole-heartedly appreciate every single one of you who link up, and I want more than anything for this link up to continue #iheartyousomuch #pleasedontleaveme



That being said, I am sorry for the "I'm on a break" post next week followed by the link up. Who knows, I may come back FULL FREAKING FORCE after that, or it may just go back to confessions. Either way it will give me time to figure it out. Because you all deserve that from me. I am completely honored to have met and chatted with every single one of you ladies and I at least owe you a final answer after all these half-assed weeks! #imissyoualready



Now link on up, and enjoy your hump day!

All my love,

#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | Struggle Bus

The struggle is real y'all. Too real. I can't quite make a decision about the struggle either. More on that later.

Before we get into it, let me remind you you have a plethora of link ups to confess your face off to every Wednesday. #Hashtaghumpday with my partner in crime Lauren and I of course, Alanna for confessions as well as Plucky in Love, and then Kathy and Nadine! So much humpity-hump-day love!

Kapeesh?

First, let's all take a moment to celebrate this very important day #starwarsnerdforthewin



Ok here we go...

Struggle #1 - the minute the BF leaves town something tech-related goes on the fritz. This time? The TV. Now, I claim I'm not addicted, but let me tell you, when you can't watch it, it's all you want to do! I didn't realize how much I rely on it for background noise as I make and eat dinner, do chores and basically use it as company. Get this, it visually works fine, perfect picture, just ZERO sound. I've tried everything. Restarting it, unplugging it, unplugging the HDMI cords, even flipping the breaker!! Nothing would reset the sound. #WTF #whydidnoneoftheusualfixeswork #DAMNYOUTECHNOLOGY



Struggle #2 - Game of Thrones was on Sunday. Right after the above issue began. So, since watching it without sound would be pointless, I couldn't watch. And apparently SO MUCH HAPPENED! I now have to basically avoid half my friends and all of social media to avoid spoilers #itstheTVsfault #ragedoesntbegintocoverit #whatwillievendo


Struggle #3 - I cannot seem to get my ass back in gear. My injury literally knocked me off my feet for 6 weeks, and then there's been recovery (which is still continuing), but I can't seem to get my butt active again. The most I've done is yoga and walking. Part of it is my concern for re-injuring myself, seriously I am PETRIFIED. Part of it is I'm just lazy and it's hard to start from scratch after you were immobile for over a month. But it's starting to show around the mid section and I NEED to get going on it. Any tips for getting motivated? #weddingseasoniscoming #swimsuitseasontoo



Struggle #4 - I can't decide what to do with this space. A huge part of me wants to take a break. A full month - say May - to really reflect and decided if I want to continue it. But then I freak out about letting this little baby link up die. I've been so proud of how many links we get (few but mighty!) and I know a month off will only kill any growth we have. At the same time though, I'm not taking care of those wonderful link-uppers or commenting, so maybe it's for the best. Seriously WHAT DO I DO? #almostintearsoverthis #bloggerloveisreal #overwhelmedwithlifethough



What do you do when you are on the struggle bus? I think a beer is calling my name #drinkawaytheblues




Happy humpday friends. Link up!

#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | Sorry Not Sorry

This is my sixth week in a row doing only #hashtaghumpday posts #sorrynotsorry
(ok maybe a little sorry)

Before we get into it, let me remind you you have a plethora of link ups to confess your face off to every Wednesday. #Hashtaghumpday with my partner in crime Lauren and I of course, Alanna for confessions as well as Plucky in Love, and then Kathy and Nadine! So much humpity-hump-day love!

Kapeesh?

I have put off going to the grocery store for three days straight now #sorrynotsorry

I used an Influenster coupon and then didn't get around to actually blogging about it or sharing on social media. Oops #sorrynotsorry #sendmebetterstuff

I'm having a hard time caring about stuff from my old job (yes I'm still employed there) and have zero desire to help them put out fires #sorrynotsorry



I did zero socializing this weekend other than my softball game. It was me, food, movies, the couch and about 10 trips to Home Depot, that's it #sorrynotsorry

I find it strange that weekends when the BF is gone are those types of weekends but when he's around I can't wait to get out of the house. Which is funny because he's the homebody #sorrynotsorry

The weekend included homemade buffalo chicken pizza. I ate half in one sitting #sorrynotsorry

I'm counting down till after my dermatologist appointment so I can finally lay in a tanning bed after the fact #sorrynotsorry #onlyacoupletimesipromise


I feel like I'm getting nothing accomplished at work but it's because of the swirling pile of....clustering disorganization around me that makes it impossible. So I've stopped trying so hard #sorrynotsorry #justfurstrated

Someday I'll be better. For now I'm just me #sorrynotsorry

This post might have been a bit of a cop out this week #sorrynotsorry

Happy Humpday!

Oh hey there. The usual stranger checking in for my weekly confessions.

Before we get into it, let me remind you you have a plethora of link ups to confess your face off to every Wednesday. #Hashtaghumpday with my partner in crime Lauren and I of course, Alanna for confessions as well as Plucky in Love, and then Kathy and Nadine! So much humpity-hump-day love!

Ok on to confessions...

I'm on the struggle bus hard when it comes to eating. I told myself, and a friend (sorry Kayla!), that I was going to do Whole30 this month and I've kept pushing it back and pushing it back. I finally started on Monday strong, including meal prep Sunday, only to have it come crashing down last night when stress, hormones and frustration led to a Cafe Rio run instead of me cooking dinner #itwasworthit #startingoverdayonetomorrow #damnyoufood





In other news I finally connected some dots on an issue I was having. Remember when I shared with you all about how I'm washing my hair less? And I admitted that it was causing scalp problems for me? Well then I saw an article about this Facebook post and it hit me. Maybe it's not the washing less, maybe it's my beloved Batiste causing the problem. It's been one week since I stopped using it and it's 80% better. So I need a new dry shampoo #andseriouslywtf #dangitbatiste



Along with cutting out Batiste I've just been rocking the greaseball look at work #noshameinmygame



This weekend I told myself I'd do yard work. Judging by the jungle of weeds in both my front and back yard it didn't happen. I just hate pulling weeds. Any tips for motivating myself on that one? Maybe if it was a different kind of weed #happy420 #becauesnothingelseworks #andmyyardlookslikeshit



We got Gunner 3 years ago yesterday. Seeing it pop up in my feed made me swell with happiness. I can't believe a spur of the moment decision ended up being my best friend. Happy bring-home-iversary Gunner! #obsessivedogmom #gunnertheredgolden



I started doing yoga class two weeks ago. It was my first attempt ever. I was already an inflexible person, but add in the 6 weeks I spent on crutches earlier this year and I'm whole new level of tight. Upper body strength is lacking too, I can barely hold downward dog for more than 30 seconds. It's a work in progress, that's for sure. I just wish I could share video of it all for you so you could see me shaking uncontrollably, with zero balance, huffing and puffing while doing this thing that's supposed to be "relaxing" #notsomuch #itsfreakinghard #crossyourfingersformeitgetsbetter



Lastly I just have to Fangirl SQUEEEEEEL that Game of Thrones airs this weekend!!! Eeek! Who else is excited? #winteriscoming #johnsnowis?



Hope all is well my friends - I need to get caught up with you! Link up so I can follow along!
